Carrie The Musical

Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse and Wax Lyrical Productions

Pray for your salvation, Carrie The Musical is making its blood-soaked Brisbane debut.

Based on Stephen King’s unlikely Cinderella story, the Broadway musical by Academy Award winning Dean Pitchford and Michael Gore (Fame), and original writer Lawrence D. Cohen shocked critics and audiences when it first debuted 27 years ago.

Now Carrie is coming to Brisbane for the first time – a taunted and terrified seventeen-year-old misfit with a terrible secret… one which will eventually ignite her revenge.

Make your date for the Senior Prom to see who will be crowned Queen, and who will have blood on their hands.

Carrie is presented by permission of OriGiN™ Theatrical on behalf of R&H Theatricals
